    Thanx bunnywearsslippers.

    Thanx for the upload link, sooo easy.

    I have a 90l tank, used a Tetra mix for substrate(cant remember the correct name)
    I am using 2x20W and 1x25Watt lights. Want my tank to have a lot of plants in it and just to look natural. Currently have Neon Tetras, Dwarf Gouramies and Rosy Barbs in. Also a few plants but unfortunately dont know their names. Use 2x2l bottles DIY CO2 with yeast and they are performing very well.

    Here is a picture I took, sorry for the quality but am still struggling to get that right
    Please let me know any advice or comments
    Regards
    Martin
